Former Austin peace and justice activist David MacBryde -- a Berlin-based correspondent for The Rag Blog -- offers a progressive perspective on developments in Germany and the Eurozone, including the European Occupy Movement and economic justice and environmental activities. MacBryde is a faith and economics-based social activist with roots in the Quaker church. Much of his work in Germany has involved the “Swords to Plowshares” movement, especially in the work of converting military bases to peaceful civilian use, and with the anti-war American Voices Abroad in Berlin.
David studied physics and mathematics at Yale and philosophy at the University of Texas, was a staffer at The Rag, Austin’s influential ‘60s underground newspaper, and worked with the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and with Austin’s Armadillo Press, an IWW union print shop. He was also a UT shuttle bus driver and worked with the drivers' union, ATU Local 1549. David MacBryde moved to Germany in 1981.
